paintings & procrastinations


 And now I introduce Duke.

After feeling down from last weeks painting endeavor, I conversed with a few friends—a tiny community of artists existing in the netherlands of suburbia. Coffee and words. I returned inspired and ready to leave Umbrella Lady in limbo.

I decided to revisit my Duke sketch. There is something in the expression of his face that keeps me coming back to him. Exhaustion, compassion, disappointment, hope. Everything I feel at mid life. 

He is my Frankenstein. I pieced him together and brought him to life.I enlarged him 600%. Not easy in a tiny studio with an 8.5x11 printer. But i wont' let that stop me. 

My husband finds his presence creepy during his 3am walk to the bathroom, but "I've grown accustomed to his face". 

Enter Barrette Girl.Every Frankenstein needs a bride. She's only a mere 200%, but I have faith that she will "grow" on him.
